“Ha Long Bay on land.”
Ninh Binh is filled with steep karst mountains soaring amidst tranquil rice paddies, meandering rivers, and dotted with temples and ancient settlements.
The best way to explore the area is on a scenic boat ride that passes through the mountainscape or by following the riverside path by bicycle.
